    Good for them. Spoiling the black market ammunition is a good idea. No one but thugs and criminals is buying that stuff. If it`s a just cause, like overthrowing the harsh Syrian government, rebels will be backed by UN or US or EU who will supply them.

    @ Tiredofnicks - Thanks for the hints. I`m pretty patient with ads. The free services we enjoy {like YouTube and IAB} have to have them to pay and keep running, but that was a loooooong one and they piss me off.

    Speaking of which, y`all should click on an ad here at IAB just to help them out and make sure they`re here in the future. Hell, if everyone clicked on 5 a day every day they could afford to hire me :-) hint hint

    This kind of stuff dates back to the first world war when the Brits altered hand grenades and bombs to make them explode in the user`s hand or weapon.

    In WWII the Germans were notorious for leaving booby traps like this wherever they retreated from.

    The Yanks did this in Vietnam, it was called project eldest son.
    They then circulated a fake commie newsletter saying that the guns were exploding because Chinese guns were made from bad steel.
    It was mainly to make the enemy doubt their gear, and sabotage morale.
    They also rigged some communist mortar shells so they exploded instantly inside the mortar when fired.
    This worked but was not widespread.

    It`s not officially confirmed, but generally accepted that the Israelis "salt" ammunition like this and distribute it though black market vendors to insurgents.

    But both the American and Israelis put more effort into it than the Syrians, and used an explosive indistinguishable from t

    That`s exactly why, when we find weapons/ammo caches, we call in the combat engineers & EOD guys to destroy them. You never attempt to use any of it, they come in and catalog what was found (amount & type of weapons/ammo) take pictures/video and then blow that sh*t up!
